REAL LIFE COUPLES WHO STAR TOGETHER ON SCREEN

by 

We all love a good fictional TV romance or couple. Their lives are ones we invest perhaps in too much emotionally and certainly literal time. However what about when an in real life couple shares a screen together? Does this happen often? Either way looking at real couples who share a screen seems entertaining! As we approach Valentine’s Day on our calendar, I thought looking into this just might be fun.

Most of the couples I remembered without having to research are still married, which makes featuring their on screen work together more fun because they’re still going strong. The one that isn’t devastated their fans, but hopefully beyond just what’s currently in my mind, we can find more to add to our list. Of course this isn’t even close to all those couples who’ve shared screen time, but we’ll leave them for another day. Some are more famous than others, and some are lesser known. Let’s meet them, shall we?


REAL COUPLES WHO SHARE A SCREEN


ALEXA PENAVEGA and CARLOS PENAVEGA from PICTURE PERFECT MYSTERIES

These two have shared several screens together. From guest spots on her husband’s TV show to Hallmark film roles, the Picture Perfect Mysteries from Hallmark were simply the easiest to headline. Honestly, I haven’t loved what I’ve seen them together in. I think they’re fun just to watch their social media content and I appreciate much of what Alexa says about how she plans to show rather than preach her faith, however their roles together aren’t the most memorable.

AMANDA ABBINGTON and MARTIN FREEMAN from SHERLOCK

These two, I don’t think, ever married, but were together several years before splitting up though during Abbington’s primary time on Sherlock, research seems to suggest they were still a thing. But then again, who knows! Sometimes actors keep their relationships more private and that’s to be admired.

ANNA FARIS and CHRIS PRATT from MOM

The breakup that broke hearts, before they were no longer and pre his Marvel days, Chris Pratt got a guest spot on then wife Faris’ TV sitcom Mom. It was pretty funny and the audience also gave quite a cheer knowing the two were married. Rumor also has it they met on a raunchy film they had co-starred in previously.

EMILY BLUNT and JOHN KRASINSKI from A QUIET PLACE

This is a couple who seems well liked in terms of fans. They are also a couple who doesn’t seem to be in the tabloid news much which I appreciate. Makes me wonder if their relationship is more normal than some in Hollywood. I never saw this film which his critically acclaimed, but I know many think it’s pretty dang impressive.

JOSH SWICKARD and LAUREN SWICKARD from A CALIFORNIA CHRISTMAS

A Netflix original that Lauren also wrote, this romance is sweet and is even cuter when you know the couple falling in love on screen already did fall in love in real life. Stream the film exclusively on Netflix

KEELEY HAWES and MATTHEW MCFAYDEN from STONEHOUSE

Didn’t ever watch this one but it follows a politician faking his own death. Also, I like these two as actors so it’d be fun to see them together.

KENNETH BRANAGH and EMMA THOMPSON from MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING

Divorced now, these two co-starred in one of Shakespeare’s most famous works. A feature that Branagh also directed. Additionally, they have shared the screen other times, and according to movie trivia, even met on set. Thompson would also later go on to share screen credits with her current husband Greg Wise in her award winning Sense and Sensibility. real couples who share a screen

MARK HARMON and PAM DAWBER from NCIS

As part of Harmon’s goodbye ARC (having been an OG cast member in a show that is on its 20th year), Pam Dawber plays a nosy reporter who becomes something of a thorn in Gibbs’ side. They’re quite fun together on screen which is really only as fun as it is if you know they’re married. The script allows Pam in character to show exasperation with Harmon’s Gibbs which is fun because it can feel more like those little annoyances between a veteran married couple.

BONUS! SHANTEL VAN and VICTOR WEBSTER from LOVE BLOSSOMS

Ok, so you know how you have those “cheat” days when you’re dieting? This is that in list form. These two weren’t a thing when they became co-stars and met on this set, but they did later marry and it was just a cute way to end the list!

  1. This is a fun list and idea! I haven’t seen many of these, but I’m familiar with the actors and actresses. Others that come to mind are Chris Hemsworth and his wife, Elsa Pataky, starred together in his movie 12 Strong. She had little screen time, but it was sweet to see them together knowing they are really married. And, Michael Fassbender and now-wife Alicia Vikander were a couple in The Light Between Oceans.

    I do like the “A Quiet Place” movies (way more than I ever thought I would).

    1. I love knowing who others have seen together or what others like in theme with whatever list they’re commenting on. It’s fun to talk about and of course, nice to be able to add new names to a second list with the appropriate shout-out. I haven’t seen “12 Strong,” but have heard of it and never did see “A Quiet Place.” It never really seemed interesting to me, but there have been movies that really surprised me so perhaps I should give them a chance. :)

    1. Isn’t that fun to learn those kinds of pop culture-y things!? Part of the reason I put together lists is I love the idea of “collaborating” and learning of new options that fit within the topic. I just don’t have the ability to inspire collaboration. ;P I’m glad to hear “A Quiet Place” is good. I was never super interested in it, but I have seen some movies that didn’t really interest me become some of my VERY favorites. :)
